3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. The pour was a light clear amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) frothy white head that had really nice retention which produced some excellent sticky lacing.
The aroma was moderately heavy of a floral hop, a grain malt and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit).
The taste was lightly bitter with a hint of caramel early on, then a nice hoppy bitterness took hold with a nice fruity citrus taste at the end. The flavor lasted only a short time in which the taste of grapefruit and hops took hold of the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a medium carbonation.
Overall a very nice hoppy brew that goes down nice and easy, leaving one with the nice taste of citrus at the end.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Appearance- decent bone white head that lasted a good bit. Light lacing. Fairly clear (a little cloudy right out of the bottle). Honey gold hue.
Smell- malts and spice. Clean.
Taste- a little sweet up front (surprisingly), then on to the bitterness. The notes on the nose donít really come through, unfortunately. Disappointing.
Mouthfeel- medium body.
Overall- okay, not great. Wouldnít go out of my way to have again. Many better options available.

On tap at the brewpub - Pours clear gold with a white head. The aroma has fruity / grapefruit hops and rich caramel malt. It has a medium crisp body with a modest amount of carbonation. The flavor starts with dry crackery malt, earthiness / wood, pine and a hint of lime. The finish has sulfur and minerals. Decent IPA.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to English pint glass. Pours hazy light amber/gold, two finger billowy head, very little lacing with some retention. Aroma of apricot and pine. Taste is on the earthy bitter side, decent sweet malt balance. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, slightly sticky mouth feel. Finishes bitter with floral and herbal notes. I like this one, itís traditional make up pushed is a nice change.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle in pint glass. No head at all hardly, dark gold transparent in the glass, and light hints of hops on the nose-not much else in that dept. Easy going and toned down as far as IPA's go. Not much bitterness but it does bite back a little. It's just right if you're in the mood for a good IPA without getting too crazy. I like a good strong IPA but would prefer to follow with one of these rather than a second. A good quality IPA for moderate tastes and which easily stands on its own. Probably would drink several of these if they were on hand.

I have become a fan of Full Sail. Especially since my local store sells their six packs for $4.99!
This particular IPA is heavier on the malt than most and not as heavy on the hops. I like it! The label emphasizes the "tastiness". I tend to agree. This is a very tasty beer.
